Democratic Party vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris named deceased rapper Tupac as the “best rapper alive” in a recent interview with CNN commentator Angela Rye.
Kamala Harris answered “Tupac” when asked to name the “best rapper alive.”
“He’s not alive,” reacted Rye. “Listen, west coast girls think Tupac lives on, I’m with you. I’m with you.”
“I keep doing that,” said Harris. “Um, who would I say?”
“I mean, there’s so many,” continued Harris, appearing to attempt to think of a rapper to name. “I mean, you know, I — there are some that I, I, I would not mention right now, because they should stay in their lane, but, um, others, I… go on. Keep moving.”
It wasn’t long before Harris was getting roasted online.
“She said 2Pandering, I mean 2Pac,” tweeted actor Michael Rapaport.
“Kamala Harris asked, who’s the best rapper alive? She answers @2PAC Then says ‘Not alive, I know, I keep doing that,’” tweeted Washington Examiner’s Emily Larsen. “Tries to think of another living rapper. ‘There’s some I would not mention right now because they should stay in their lane.’”
“The same Kamala Harris who said she smoked weed while listening to 2pac…. before his first album came out,” reacted Washington Examiner’s Carly Ortiz-Lytle.
